The excellent preservation of wood at the site of La Draga (5,300-5,000 cal. B.C.) allows the analysis of its transformation process. In this paper we describe the production process of wooden instruments. We review how the raw material was obtained, what were the techniques used to cut and chip logs and how the final production of tools was carried out. We also review the stone tools from La Draga that were used for woodworking : adzes, blades, flakes of flint and wood wedges. The experimental work allows the testing of hypotheses about the production processes of wooden artefacts and an evaluation of which different tools of stone and wood recovered in the site were used in which part of the working process.
